The Chamba ethnic group are native to Nigeria and Cameroon. The Chamba people were targets of the Fulani jihads in the 18th and 19th century. They were enslaved, and many migrated south into the mountains retaliating by becoming raiding bands who attacked slave and trading caravans.

Awudu Saaed

Anwudu Saaed is a friendly but quite person that started as fan of African carvings. He would congregate at his parent's workshop where carvers, designers and finishers worked. They noticed his interest and eventually Abdul Karim Star accepted him as an apprentice. Awudu was a fast learner and was determined to master this craft so that he could support his family. Eventually, he was permitted to sell some of the works he created as an apprentice in his master's workshop at various markets in Senegal, Mali, Ghana and Burkino Faso. He used the money he made to purchase his own tools and start his own workshop. He now has three apprentices of his own.

I love my new mask. I’m looking for a Shadow box frame to mount it in. It will go nicely with my other art in my home. I’ll post a picture of the finished project soon.

Well Made Mask

The mask is well made, but very small. It’s a little longer than a man’s hand.
